Check out what some of our happy patients are saying about us:

Let me start off by saying I don’t typically enjoy trips to the dentist. With that being said Dr. Ghorab is the only dentist I will ever go to again. She and her staff and unbelievably friendly and made me feel so at ease it was amazing. While I was there one of her patients, a child, came in had to say hi to her just because they were in the area. I’ve never heard of a kid liking their dentist to the point of wanting to come in and say hi just cause they were at the supermarket near by.  The equipment is all new stuff and top of the line which is crucial to me. She was so tentative to how I felt which was awesome. And to top it all off I was able to watch the masters while getting my teeth worked on. It was the best dental experience I’ve ever had and after one visit I’m no longer scared of going to the dentist… As long as the dentist is Dana.

(…)I found Dr. Ghorab and her staff to be very professional. The appointment started on time and there was none of the usual up-sells that you see everywhere these days. The visit itself was pleasant (well as pleasant as a deep cleaning could get). During the lengthy procedure the staff made sure that I remained comfortable throughout. I had to make another follow up appointment for the following week to have a filling put in. Unfortunately, due to severe traffic delays I was running almost an hour behind schedule. I ended up rolling in more than an hour late and was fully expecting to be turned away and/or rescheduled for another day. I was pleasantly surprised when I was told that Dr. Ghorab would make the time to see me. In fact she stayed past her normal hours to make sure that my filling was put in place – properly. This is the kind of customer service that you hardly see any more. Furthermore, on both occasions Dr. Ghorab followed up personally the next day to see how I was doing. This is something that I had never experienced from a dentist before. I would recommend Dr. Ghorab to anybody in the area looking for a new dentist. Dr. Ghorab and staff – keep up the excellent work! Hope to see you soon – but not too soon 😉

New to the area and looking for a new dentist for our family of 6 I was recommended to Dr. Ghorab. Friendly faces, personable interaction, updated office and procedures. The additional amazing touch, was when Dr Ghorab text my daughter the day after she had a filling done to make sure she was feeling ok. You don’t see that kind of extra effort these days. Such a nice surprise! Highly recommend! Thanks for a great experience Dr. Ghorab and staff!

Our favorite long-running dentist but all 4 of my kids have lined up to go see her. We moved to Oceanside but still make the journey to see her. She also specializes in children prior to her own practice. Thanks

Dr. Ghorab and her staff are nothing but AMAZING! I moved to the area last year and it’s not easy finding a new dentist that you’re completely comfortable with, but she made it super easy! Everyone is so professional, friendly and they really try to get to know you, unlike the corporation dentists! I can honestly say I LOVE going to the dentist!

Patricia A. from Mission Viejo, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Ghorab and her staff are wonderful.  She is a gentle, caring dentist who is an expert at her job.  She spends time with you and explains everything carefully.  She has a great smile and is so personable.  Her hygienist is also great.  Takes her time and does a great job.  I highly recommend her.  I drive (from a distance) and it was a great decision and well worth the drive.

(…)My 10 year old chipped his front tooth – a big noticeable chip after a bike accident. We came in without an appointment, and Dr. Ghorab made it no trouble to squeeze him in and fixed his tooth! Good as new. She spends a lot of time explaining things and giving options. Everytime my kids have had cavities filled, and last night after fixing my son’s tooth, she has texted from her cell phone to check in and see how her patient is feeling. She not only checking in on my son last night, she texted again this morning. Going to Dr. Ghorab is the PERFECT blend between old fashioned, down, home, small town feel and state of the art, modern technology and tremendous training and knowledge. She is the best!!!

Jenai W. from Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


My daughter and I have been going to Dr. Ghorab for about a year and a half now and couldn’t be happier. She is awesome with kids and educates them with home care techniques to get rid of the “sugar bugs”. My 5 year old actually gets excited when it’s time to go for her cleaning. Dr. Ghorab is very knowledgable, diligent and accommodating. Her office staff always goes above and beyond, you can tell they really take pride in what they do. I appreciate the rapport they’ve built with my family.  I recommend her to my friends and military families. Three thumbs up!

Lauryn H. from Austin, TX (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Ghorab and her staff are absolutely amazing! I came in for a cleaning a few days ago and it was the best dental experience I’ve had! Everyone was super friendly and made you feel welcomed. I highly recommend coming here for all your dental needs. You definitely won’t be disappointed. 🙂

Nancy L. from Riverside, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had my first appointment with Dr Ghorab this week,  She was referred by a good friend.  I had to have a tooth pulled.  The extraction was finished and I didn’t even know it was done.  I am so pleased to find this office.  The care was so good and the cost was (great).  I’ve found my Dentist from now on.  Dr Ghorab even followed up the next day with a phone call to see how I was doing.  Wow!  Thanks so much!

Sarah S. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


(…)Dr. Dana and staff are so kind and caring – my nerves were going crazy because I’m one of those people who gets really anxious when going to the dentist. I’m happy to report that it was a great experience and she was super gentle with me! I will definitely be going to Dana from now on!

Laura K. from Rancho Palos Verdes, CA (Source: Yelp)


I cannot say enough positive things about Dr. Ghorab and her staff!  We recently moved to San Clemente and were referred to her by a friend. My entire family has been in to see her all with positive experiences! She is extremely knowledgeable and takes time to explain everything. Her hygienists are excellent and thorough. I have been to Dentists in the past who try to push unnecessary treatments on their patients -Dr. Ghorab will explain everything and recommend what truly needs to be done. I recently had a crown fitted and she was gentle and I had no pain during and after. She is excellent!

Victoria B. from San Clemente, CA (Source: Yelp)


So no offense to Dr. Ghorab but……who loves the dentist right??? Well how about after seeing Dr. Ghorab I do!  So she is going to make your experience from the front desk to the dental hygenist to seeing Dr. Ghorab the best it is going to get!  Dr. Ghorab’s bedside manner is wonderful and her upbeat demeanor quite refreshing .  She even has tv’s in her exam rooms so while procedures are being done on your mouth you can be distracted.  I love that.  This is an extremely professional office but not lacking in warmth and compassion.  The perfect combination.

Erin A. from Frisco, TX (Source: Yelp)


Amazing dentist!  Amazing person!  The second you meet Dr. Ghorab you are at ease.  She treats her patients like family and truly cares about you as a whole.  Our entire family goes here. Sadly, we are moving out of state after being under her care for 3 years.  We will miss Dr. Ghorab and the entire staff.   This is the best dental office we have ever had the pleasure of going to.

Michelle F. from San Clemente, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been going to this dentist office for the past 7 years.  After moving to San Clemente i was apprehensive about a new dentist.  As soon as i walked into the office all of my anxiety disappeared.  The office is always clean and the staff is very friendly.  (…)overall a great experience.  The dr is great and is always efficient and kind.  I recently started taking my 3 year old into the office and they’ve been easing him into the chair.  Now he loves going!

Janet S. from San Clemente, CA (Source: Yelp)


(…)I decided it was time to find someone local and I couldn’t be happier with Dr. Ghorab! She has been wonderful with the crowns that I’ve needed. When I was concerned with the color of one of my crowns, she sent it back to the lab without hesitation and reassured me that she wanted it to be perfect. Her staff is so friendly & courteous. Her dental hygienist is amazingly kind, careful and gentle with my highly sensitive teeth. In order to be ultra thorough, she even helped to numb each area before starting.   I’ve already sent my husband to her and plan to have my children see her as well when the time comes.  I am so happy that I found Dr. Ghorab!

Glo G. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am a new patient and my experience was very positive. I found the staff to be very pleasant, accommodating and helpful.  Dr. Ghorab was also very professional and caring.  Everything went on time as planned (I wasn’t the first appt).  I would highly recommend Dr. Ghorab’s practice.

Jennifer C. from San Juan Capistrano, CA (Source: Yelp)


Love, Love this office!!! Just moved to the area and very nervous about having to find a new dentist after being at my old dentist for over 15 years. Dr Ghorab came highly recommended by my neighbor. I made an appointment for a cleaning , the front office was so nice and professional setting it up and got me in quick. I had a warm welcome when I arrived for my appointment. The hygienist was amazing very gentle and very informative which I appreciate. Dr. Ghorab did a thorough exam and I just loved her, so sweet and warm!!! I’m so glad I was recommended to this office, makes going to the dentist very pleasant.

Aerial A. from Oceanside, CA (Source: Yelp)


(…)Dr. Ghorab… I couldn’t say enough wonderful things about her! If you ever want a dentist who cares about YOU and YOUR dental health and not about what you have in your wallet, she’s the one. She’s not a super aggressive dentist, she has the best recommendations and options given to you. She actually takes her time to explain everything to you and I never feel like she’s rushing to get to the next patient. She shows me things on my X-rays so I can have my own visual of what’s going on. I love knowing I can trust everything that she recommends for me. This office treats you and your family like their own family. She’s patient with my young child, takes her time, let’s her see her cool tools (not the scary looking ones) and explains to her the process of what’s going to happen so my youngster isn’t so anxious. She also gets to dig in the treasure box when she’s done which she loves! Dr. Ghorab also offers payment plans, not many offices do that. If you want a dentist and staff who educate you, treat you like family, who you can trust, and who truly cares about your dental needs and health, this office is where to go! They will take care of you!!

I had my first appointment yesterday and I just loved it! The staff was so friendly and felt very welcomed right from the start. I’m not used to the one on one interaction from dentists and she very much took the time for me! I’ll be setting up my girls to go there as well!

Fawcia Y. from Corona, CA (Source: Yelp)


Great office, great staff, The dentist is laid-back friendly makes you feel comfortable. I have two small children ages five and two she’s great with kids not only did she clean their teeth but she also read to them to make them feel ease!I would highly recommend her.

Margeaux B. from Newport Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


We had such a good experience when I took my 5 yr old daughter.  She cracked one of her teeth and I wanted to have it looked at immediately.  They got her in the same day and suggested fixing it right then and there.  Absolutely no pain for my daughter.  She even said she liked going to the dentist.  We had been going to a pediatric dentist that was about 4x the price but Dr. Ghorab is so much better.

Devin Buttner (Source: Google)


My experience with Dana Ghorab was great. Everyone hates going to the dentist but she and her staff are very professional. I did not feel any pain, they have tvs to watch as they work on you which is great, and they explained everything that was going on at every point.  This was by far the best dental experience I have ever had.

Heather M. from San Clemente, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Ghorab is the best!!! I absolutely love her and her amazing staff. She was recommended to me by a neighbor after our family dentist retired and I couldn’t be happier. They are amazing with adults and children both. I even showed up early to my cleaning ( trust me that was a first). I’m not one of those people that usually goes online to write reviews, but I am so happy and appreciative that I had to share.

Kari S. from San Clemente, CA (Source: Yelp)


All Around Best Dentist office my Family and I have ever been to. I myself truly am not a fan of going to the Dentist, but Dr. Ghorab always makes you feel so comfortable and welcome. She has such a great energy about her. The dental hygienist is by far the most Thorough and Gentle hygienist. All around everyone from front desk kind smile greeting you to a thorough explanation of everything that they are doing, it a delightful experience. If you are looking for a new Dentist for yourself or your family this your truly the spot for you!!!

Irene L. from Mission Viejo, CA (Source: Yelp)


I highly recommend Dr. Ghorab.  I have been her patient since year 1 of her practice.  She has been an honest and highly knowledgeable doctor.  Her hygienist is very thorough as well!  When it comes to your health, you need a doctor and staff you can trust.  You’ll find that here. I love that this is a family run business and look forward to seeing “mom” at the front desk.

T. N. from San Clemente, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Dr. Ghorab for about 5 years.  Let’s face it going to the dentist is not exactly something you look forward to.  However, she is the best dentist I have ever had.  Her work is really good.  Office is more like a spa than a dentist office.  Each chair has it’s own TV which is really nice.  Staff is very friendly.  Definitely recommend.

Aimee P. from San Juan Capistrano, CA (Source: Yelp)


Who can say that they actually enjoyed their visit at the dentist?  Well now I can.  The staff is very friendly and make you feel extremely comfortable.  My hygienist was Yvette and she was awesome.  My teeth never felt so clean!  Dr. Ghorab was professional, knowledgeable and really took the time to spend with me and answer any questions.  I highly recommend this place for all your dental needs.

Amna Z. from Poway, CA (Source: Yelp)


I use to dread going to the dentist, but ever since I found Dr. Ghorab my fear of the dentist has gone away. Her and her staff go above and beyond to make you feel comfortable. I have a 10 year old daughter who can’t wait to see Dr. G!
We drive up San Diego about every three month for check ups and cleanings. We are always greeted by her professional staff who instantly make you feel right at home.
I would definitely recommend Dr. Ghorab to all my friends and family.

Debbie L. from Ladera Ranch, CA (Source: Yelp)


This is my first visit! My daughter had her visit yesterday. This is the best dental experience I’ve ever had! I was nervous and embarrassed I had neglected my teeth for a while. I felt completely comfortable and a very realistic plan of resolution was presented. I communicated that I get sick from the numbing and the dentist used a different numbing injection and for the first time in my life I didn’t have a reaction. She talks through as she works with you and her dental assistants are adorable. Norma runs the front as sweet as she can! My family has found our new dentist!

Roshan K. from Pasadena, CA (Source: Yelp)


I love Dr Ghorab!  I’ve been to plenty of dentists, and have never been to one that I trust. My previous dentist told me I needed 4 cavities, which I thought was weird, because I take excellent care of my teeth, and never had cavities even as a child. Dr Ghorab told me there was only 1 that may turn into a cavity,  but told me how to take care of it to prevent it. She could have easily just filled it and charged me for it. She spent a lot of time telling me to care for my teeth. She’s also a really warm and friendly person, and made me feel like she cares about her patient’s health and doesn’t just see it as a business. The office is gorgeous, and feels homey instead of a dentist’s office. Her staff is super friendly and great at what they do. I’m relieved to finally find a dentist I trust.

Kasey P. from San Clemente, CA (Source: Yelp)


(…)Her and her team were very thorough and went over everything they were doing. Stuff I didn’t even know because no one has explained it to me before. She checked in with me later that night after my numbing wore off to see how everything was feeling. I’m so happy I went to her!! Seriously the best dentist experience ever. I already booked my 6 month appt and is it weird I’m looking forward to it??

Natalie B. from Pasadena, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had the best dental appointment ever! I can honestly say that everything was painless and professional. The office itself is beautiful and up to date. I’ve been to other dental offices that just rush through the procedure but with her, she took her time. She’s very personable and loves what she does. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a quality dentist.

S. M. from Carlsbad, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had my first appointment today with Dr. Ghorab, its been a few years since I’ve been to the dentist because we moved and I was dreading trying to find a new dentist! I was so pleased from the moment I walked in. I was kindly greeted by a friendly happy front desk girl, who made a proper introduction to Natalie the dental hygienist. Natalie did a great job, took her time to give me a good overdue cleaning and was very gentle. After my cleaning I was seen by Dr. Ghorab who was so friendly, kind, thorough, and knowledgeable. She assessed my needs and made her much appreciated recommendations. I’m so happy with my experience and so glad that I found a great dentist office.

Devin B. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)
